If you're mulling over a bathroom project, here are a few things you may want to consider
If you have ever struggled with a bathroom design which doesn’t meet your needs then you know the difficulties this can cause. Building a new home can provide you with the blank canvas to ensure the bathroom meets your functional requirements, alongside your aesthetic desires.
It is extremely helpful to consider your daily routines. If the mornings create queues for the bathroom, think about the inclusion of an ensuite, or where space is limited consider the use of a multi-functional bathroom, creating separate zones for additional flexibility. Double showers can also allow couples or parents and children to shower at the same time comfortably.
Citing bathrooms to allow natural light is often desirable, however the location of adjacent water and waste services can provide a construction efficient location, for example above kitchens or next to utility rooms. Ventilation and electricity also need to be factored in to bathroom placement.
Keeping a bathroom simple is key to ensuring good functionality. While aesthetic preference for bathroom components may add cost, good overall design catered to your needs should be a standard consideration when liaising with your builder or bathroom professional.
Planning your bathroom will be an exciting part of your new home journey. G.J. Gardner will take the time to talk to you and understand your functional requirements and family routines. Knowing the right questions to ask can help ensure that the overall configuration matches the requirements of your household.
